Jolly Phonics

Indians are adept at learning languages; however learning & mastering English has been a challenge due to the inherent contradictions in the language itself. Even the native English speaker finds the language unscientific since there is a difference in the spoken & the written word. Two teachers of UK created a multi sensory system (Jolly Phonics) by dividing the 26 alphabets into 44 sounds that are taught in groups rather than in the A to Z sequence. Each sound is learnt through a story, a song, an action & a visual. DPS Varanasi has always been agile to the need of the time. In order to make language learning enjoyable and effective at the Primary level leading to long term benefits our team of teachers went through a rigorous workshop on Jolly Phonics on 14 th & 15 th April. The children have begun learning English through the “Jolly” technique.

The Literary Fest celebration ‘GOONJ-2017’, a two-day event for the class IX to XII students which concluded on Monday, provided a platform acting as a melting pot of language and culture. It got underway with the lighting of lamp and ‘Mangalacharan’ which involved chiming of Shlokas to set the tone for upcoming events. The fest began with the Wordsmith’s Address by Rohit who skillfully played with words to bring out the great power of the words which was instrumental in introducing the young aspirants to the world of literature. The ‘Sketch Show’ highlighted that literary creations, in spite of being miles miles apart and dealing with different genres, project the same kind of feelings and thoughts which travel far, breaking the man-made barrier, and compositions throughout the ages emanate similar human emotions. Commemorating the glorious phase of Indian literature, an attempt was made by the participants to pay a tribute to the poets of ‘Bhakti Kaal’ through Kavya Ras Dhar which was a blend of music and drama. The event also included songs in French and English which added a new colour to the fest.

MELANGE (COLLAGE MAKING)

Less radical, and more useable, are the methods of collage”. Collage making can act as a spring to new ideas of creativity. It is not only about using waste material but also an opportunity through which one can freely express his/her imagination and creativity; and when such an opportunity is given at an early stage of schooling, children tend to create natural and real imaginations. Such an inspiring activity was conducted for the DPS Varanasi Junior Wing students (classes III, IV, V) on 27 th April 2017 in the House Activity Period where the students were asked to utilize waste papers/ newspapers to make a collage on ‘Cleanliness-our collective domain’, the theme of the activity. The activity was divided into two different ways to display the collage. The students of Classes III and IV were asked to prepare ‘a tear and paste’ collage related to cleanliness with an inspiring slogan where students came up with brilliant ideas by showing the collage of the clean and green Earth, a man collecting the garbage thrown on streets, usage of dustbins etc. Class V was asked to prepare Placards along with pictures on it, spreading the message of cleanliness, using the tear and paste method. The activity was a thought which turned to be a creative success.

Matrabhasha Divas , held on 2015-02-21 at DPS Varanasi premises

There is no sound sweeter than the words uttered in our mother tongue. Be it happiness, excitement, thrill or even anger, one can express oneself clearly and completely in one’s mother tongue. Since English has taken the forefront and we prefer to communicate in English, unconsciously ignoring our mother tongue.

To make the children aware about this, Matrabhasha Gyan Pariksha was organized on 21st February 2015, wherein all the students of classes VI - VIII participated.  As one entered the venue one could feel the pulse and magnitude of the event. The entire campus was abuzz with the celebration as the students were seen wishing and greeting the teachers in their mother tongue in different ways like Sat-shree-akal, kem-chho etc. The Pariksha was conducted in two phases.

 The students were provided with a multiple choice GK questionnaire with an objective to create awareness of linguistic traditions and to give fillip to “Knowledge Creation” in Indian languages. Phase II comprised two activities-Poster making Competition’ on cultural heritage, language and diversity in India 

A passage in English was given to be translated in Mother Tongue or any other Indian Language with an objective to support translation from other languages. This kind of celebration would ignite a passion for greater use of Mother Tongue and other Indian Languages among students as well as helpful in the development and progress of the nation. The students with outstanding performance were felicitated by the school.

KHOJ : AN OVER NIGHT CAMP

“An insight into one’s self”

Message from the Principal’s desk:

As an educator, I have always believed in quality education and providing ample opportunities for each child to learn and accomplish his/her potential. This had been made possible through “khoj: An insight to one’s self.” Khoj is a platform where the students are able to become self-reliant, independent and inculcate caring and sharing attitude for their fellow beings. They are taught to socialize with one another through this medium. It is actually a collective input of students, parents and staff and my heartiest congratulation to this team for creating such a healthy, safe and exciting milieu where each child discovers oneself and becomes a more confident individual.
